Author Notes

This is a life saver when you only have a couple of Yukon gold potatoes and little time. These Potato Cups can be filled with anything you'd like and kids will find them fun peeling apart the layers after eating the delicious filling you put inside. I like to filled them with zucchini ribbons and have even filled them with chicken salad. They are a double side dish. —BerryBaby

What You'll Need
  • 2 Large Yukon Gold potatoes
  • Olive oil (for coating muffin tins)
  • 2 tablespoons Butter
  • Lawry's Seasoning Salt
  1. Wash and peel potatoes.
  2. Using a Mandolin, slice potatoes and sprinkle with Lawry's seasoning salt to coat potatoes....less is more with salt so use sparingly.
  3. Coat the inside of muffin tins with Olive Oil.
  4. Place two slices of potato in each muffin tin.
  5. Add slices to cover the inside walls (about three slices) of the tins.
  6. Add two more (slices) layers Flat in center of each tin.
  7. Dot with tiny pieces of butter about three dots the size of peas.

  9. Place in 400 degree oven for 30 minutes or until edges are golden and starting to crisp.
  10. Remove from oven and let rest for one minute.
  11. Using a sharp thin bladed knife, gently go around each muffin tin and pop Potato Cups out.

Whaaaaat? These are so cute! I wish I knew about them when the kids were small. Now I have to go out and buy a mandolin so I can make them.

Quite honestly I just came up with idea one day while trying to think of something new for lunch. I had leftovers of zucchini and chicken salad and wanted a new vessel other than bread. So, I had one potato and just came up with these. I love them as well. So many fun things that you can put in them. They are crispy and stand up just like a cup. Let me know what ideas you use them for...big kids like them too!
